  • The back cover features an image from No Joke for James, which is taken from the front cover of "Thomas & His Friends Help Out".
  • Some copies do not include Trouble in the Shed in the 'Thomas Comes to Breakfast' portion. This is because that episode is already on the Thomas and His Friends Help Out portion. However, the nameboard sequence is still left between A Cow on the Line and the end credits.
  • Some copies have the portion with Thomas Comes to Breakfast with no echo.


  • On the "Thomas Comes to Breakfast" portion, the audio overlaps.
  • The "Thomas Comes to Breakfast" portion lacks the opening.
  • On the back cover, Saved From Scrap is titled "Served From Scrap" .
